About the event

Join us on this 6.5 mile moderate hike around Mitchells Fold and Bromlow Callow.

The focus of many local legends, Mitchell's Fold is a Bronze Age stone circle set in dramatic moorland on Stapeley Hill. It once consisted of some 30 stones, 15 of which are still visible.

As with many prehistoric sites, Mitchell’s Fold is the subject of legend.

It is said that during a time of famine, a fairy gave a magic cow that provided an endless supply of milk. One night an evil witch milked her into a sieve. When the cow realised the trick, she disappeared. The witch was turned to stone and a circle of stones was erected around her, to ensure that she could not escape.

Great walk with some beutiful views!
